Peaceful Looking for (Good) Luck12 Oct 2018
The Murray Baker/Andrew Forsman trained Peaceful (Savabeel) will be looking for a bit of good luck when she steps out in the A$500,000 One Thousand Guineas Gr.1 at Caulfield on Saturday. Peaceful has had plenty of luck since heading to Melbourne off the back of a stakes victory at Wanganui, but most of it has been bad luck, having been cast in her box and scratched from the Thousand Guineas Prelude Gr.3 on race morning two weeks ago, before stepping out in the Listed Antler Luggage Stakes at Flemington last Saturday only to find herself locked away behind the leaders without any sort of run, going to the line with her head on her chest, having no more than a training gallop as she got to the line just 1.65 lengths behind the winner Wild Planet.
Peaceful’s run of luck continued when the barrier draws came out earlier in the week with the filly allotted barrier 12 of the 15 runners, but on a positive note she should get a clear run from out there and not suffer from the traffic problems she encountered at Flemington. Leading hoop Damien Lane rode Peaceful last week but had a prior commitment for the Kris Lees trained El Dorado Dreaming in The One Thousand Guineas, which sees John Allen take the ride on Peaceful on Saturday.
The team will be hoping to get across to midfield with a bit of cover and hope she can be strong at the end of the 1600m. Peaceful is currently rated as a $23 chance in the Group 1 event.« Back
